Jesus says you should drop everything, first GO and make amends with this person, then come back and present your gift (See Matt 5:23-24 in Verses listed below). Needless to say, making amends is a big deal to God! Making amends is not just about expressing our opinion but also in seeking to understand the other party (See Prov 18:2 below).
